I've played to 8/6 to death, but had never tried 8/5. Very promising!!

There are a few other new transfers both aud and sbd that you might enjoy even more although they are each missing a few songs

The source you linked has these second set songs although they seem to be from an unidentified source that isn't as good as the Craig Todd recording (Harvey Kaslow was not present on this night, but he did help out on the famous 8-6 recording)

I'm in the same boat, Ring.
I love 8/6, but I had never listened to 8/5 before today.
This may be the most unique Bertha intro I have ever heard.
2:34 before they get to the opening lyric. I can't remember any other version where they didn't jump into the vocals pretty much right away. Also enjoyed the Sugaree as well as TOO,which is short but Sweet!!!

That is strange about the opening of Bertha, must have been something going on to delay them.
Been delayed by work annoyances (that is, actually having to do some).

8-6-74 may be the best show I've ever heard from start to finish. 8-4 & 8-5 are also excellent shows and I love the China Rider from this show. Even though I've posted mostly early 80's comments here (GD & JGB) I've finally come to the conclusion that 1974 is the greatest year for the band.

edit: oops, I thought you were talking about 8-5-74. Sorry Ring, although this is a great show too.

That may just be my favorite Casey Jones of all time. That was really fun. Thanks for that. I'll use that for my set break and drove home now.

Jock sez to tell you 8-6 has THE best H2H, & is very popular since it & 7-2-71 were the two most popular bootlegs available as double albums in the early 70s, long before LMA or RTs, so many know it well...

Jock must be on some good meds for his back troubles

8/5 has nothing on 8/6, but is still an enjoyable show. It's also about 40 minutes shorter than than the next night.

Looks like it was originally scheduled as a one-night stand, but they added the 8/5 show at the last minute when 8/6 sold out.

Not to take anything away from 8/5, which is a fine show, but there's really no comparison in my opinion. 8/6 has all that 8/5 has and a lot more. 8/6 has a better Other One (complete with MAMU sandwich), one of the best-ever Hard to Handles, Dew, Cumberland, St. Stephen, Lovelight..

Point taken. But it's got a great Not Fade Away (which I like better than Lovelight).

I agree with you about the El Paso, however it takes second place for loveliest TDIH El Paso

The TDIH El Paso champion was a short drive to the south one year earlier.
